I enjoyed playing through this DLC, but yes it's incredibly short. I would also warn people to wait for a lowered price on this content before buying it.

Levi and I talked a lot about the prior 'Arkham' DLCs, which were all somewhat different from Batgirl (and yet still crummy). Even so, this DLC is so completely "meets expectations" with low expectations in mind. You just know the devs are working with a much smaller toolset.

Let's see, a cut-off DLC area. A character that basically plays like Batman but is more limited. Almost nothing new in terms of art, animations, sound, (except for a few voice actors), and an innocuous story. That makes this DLC feel less substantial than some of the weaker in-game side quests.

The funny thing is that when I say limited toolset and low expectations, it doesn't have to be this way. A basically standalone DLC set should include some new ideas- ideas that came into being after the main game's missions were in full production. This can be done with small teams and limited new asset resources, but it takes a willingness to shake things up. (Empowering some direction that's different from the main game). /rant
